Worked one hive today no problems, had smoker but didn't need it.
Second hive that had been testy before attacked me. Had 200 stingers in my jeans and all over the gloves. Thank you Magnet Man for that Ultrabreeze smock!! (hope all the bees in Heaven are gentle)
this hive is now dead.
If this keeps up it may be time to give up after over 20 years.
